ahhh, so good to see this one up here! I first read this in The Price and The Prize, and it completely boggled my mind. the writing is lush, sensuous, searingly hot, all things I have come to expect in your stories, and it's set in the Mirrorverse, FTW! and the art so perfectly matches the story, by one of my very favourite authors, *and* one of my favourite artists to boot -- and one helluva rip-roaring damn fine read!
a universe not for the faint of heart, but with its own rewards, for those who can grab them. kudos indeed, kai Syn, kai kassai!!

Wooh, this is so beautifully written! *wipes tears too* I'm looking at that artwork and thinking this fire thing is very real. The art reminds me a bit of Alex Grey's work, with the mystical flames and the auras. And this is what I call extremely good writing of this concept, because as one reads, it gets mirrored. This room is all lit up now, lol. Also, I've been studying this effect of having flames shoot out of my hands - I can't exactly start a real fire, but heat is definitely created and some people who resonate with me say that my touch is healing if they feel that heat from it. Of course, I can't always tell them how that comes about! hehe. (By the way, the word mirror reminds me once more that we as readers either play the role of the bad guys or good guys, depending on our position of respect towards the characters. In this story, the bad guys have their mirrors, but McCoy is the friend who feels those things inbetween. By the end, I see that distinction gets blurred - in the sense that ok, the bad guys came to see this motivated by dubious goals, but the "union" transcends those and can even "turn" some who experience it). In conclusion, I want to say well done, and thank you for the concept of Taaz Avine: something which at first glance would seem "made up", but is in truth a reality of a psycho-sexual nature. The best nature there is, imo... :) So may I also take the opportunity to say CHEERS to the K/S fandom (was feeling a bit jaded about it recently, but your story relit the flame).
